Located inside the center of Legacy West’s new department store, Neighborhood Goods, Prim and Proper is a full service bar and restaurant offering retail shoppers drinks, sandwiches, salads, and other hors d’oeuvres as they take a break from stuffing their bags trendy fashions and accessories.
Neighborhood Goods itself is an innovative concept, bringing to life an array of brands that once only were available for purchase online. It’s very much what Instagram would be like if it had a storefront. The plates and drinks at Prim and Proper are also arranged and designed in an aesthetically pleasing, Instagram-ready fashion.
Keeping up with current health trends, Prim and Proper offers a cocktail containing turmeric, along with Ford’s Gin, lime, ginger, shishito pepper, and thai basil. This drink, called The Cure, tastes very much like a cold pressed juice, heavy on turmeric flavor and light on booze. For health and fitness bloggers, The Cure is one to garner several likes.
Another drink worth trying is The Window Shopper. This Ketel One Vodka-based cocktail comes mixed with citrus, mixed berries, St. Germain, bitters, and touches of champagne. It is a bright magenta colored cocktail with a fizzy, fruity taste, similar to that of an italian soda.
If you’re not wanting to sit at the bar, you can order cocktails, wines, coffees, and teas on the Neighborhood Goods mobile application and have them brought to you as you peruse the store.
While Prim and Proper has become known for its signature The Goods Burger during its four months of having been open, The Club is a lighter option that is also worth a try. The Club comes served on sourdough bread and is stacked high with herb-roasted turkey breast, aged white cheddar, peppered bacon, pesto aioli, tomato, avocado, and pea sprouts. Guests have the option of ordering the sandwich with a side of chips, seasonal fruit salad, or an arugula persimmon salad.
The plates, bowls, and cocktail glasses at Prim and Proper are also modern and minimalistic, and can actually be purchased at Neighborhood Goods.
There’s not a whole lot to Prim and Proper in regard to an experience, given the fact that it’s a smaller component of a larger entity, however, if you shop at Neighborhood Goods, you should definitely consider stopping by Prim and Proper for lunch or dinner.
